ATV Trails in Moab, Utah
If you are staying in Moab, Utah, you know what a special place you have landed in. The grandeur and tranquility of Arches National Park are hard to beat. The opportunities for hiking, mountain climbing and rock climbing are endless, but the area around Moab is also a great place to take if off road with your favorite ATV.

White Wash Sand Dunes

The dunes at White Wash Sand Dunes are as scenic as they are dramatic. This is a popular location for ATV enthusiasts, so expect some company to raise the adrenaline even higher. These isolated dunes are located just 48 miles to the northwest of Moab. Along with the dunes, you will find a number of dirt roads that will lead you to the Green River and Crystal Geyser. None of these roads are marked, so it is best to obtain a map of the area or take along someone who is well experienced with the area. This is a remote area, so no supplies or facilities will be available. Carrying along a good supply of water is important, and all trash should be taken out with you.
